Now that’s the way my manager speaks!
Over the course of the past 12-months, Ole has begun to truly put his stamp on the team. From selling players who didn’t fit his vision (i.e. Lukaku, Fellaini, etc.), to bringing in players with the mentality necessary to challenge for titles (Fernandes, Maguire).
In an interview with United We Stand, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:
‘I’d rather have a hole in the squad than an a**hole. Personality is so important. We’re a team in a team environment.
‘You want players to have a bit of ego and edge but they have to be able to adapt.
‘There were things I didn’t like last year, some personal agendas which couldn’t be sorted out until the summer.
‘There will always be players who want to play more in football, but if a team is to be successful then players have to be available at different times.
‘I feel in this group we don’t have one bad apple.’
This summer will be instrumental in showing us where Ole’s rebuild is ultimately headed. More to come!
